Q818 Chairman: Thank you very much.
The acoustics are not brilliant in this room, so do not be afraid
to project your voices. Is there a Sector Skills Council for that?
Could I begin by asking you a very simple question: are there
separate Sector Skills Councils' agreements for each of the four
nations for every sector?
Mr Woods: Yes, I believe that
to be the case.
Q819 Chairman: Could you tell us
how that works out in a practical sense, given that labour markets
and sectors do not always match national boundaries?
Mr Jones: Did you mean the Sector
Skills Agreements that we have?
